BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Forecasters are warning of flooding in parts of central Alabama.

The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory in the Birmingham area. Forecasters say an inch of rain has already fallen and an additional 2 inches are possible.

Forecasters say flooding is possible in Vestavia Hills, Bessemer, Pelham and several other areas.

Footage from local television stations showed drivers getting stuck while trying to cross roads that were covered in inches of water. Forecasters say drivers should avoid roads that are covered by standing water because the water may be deeper than it appears.

Forecasters are also warning of thunderstorms and showers in the Huntsville area. Forecasters say the storms could include winds of up to 40 mph and frequent lightning.
